A 50-year-old man accused of burglary and indecent assault was yesterday denied bail.
Police said Alutus Newbold broke into a woman’s Cat Island home on November 2 and kissed a 13-year-old boy who was living at the residence.
He was not required to enter a plea and his case was fast tracked to the Supreme Court by way of a voluntary bill of indictment (VBI).
He returns to court December 16.
In the interim, he was denied bail and taken into custody; however, he has a right to apply to the Supreme Court for bail.
Meanwhile, another man was also remanded to prison over allegations he had sex with a minor last week.
Chanton Butler, 20, is accused of engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl on November 2.
Due to the nature of the charge, he was not required to enter a plea during his arraignment before Assistant Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain.
As a result, his matter was adjourned to December 16 for service of a voluntary bill of indictment (VBI).
In the meantime, he was denied bail and remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.
He also has a right to apply to the Supreme Court for bail.
